Nosing about in other peoples' calendars, I see that my friend and brother Martin Faulks will be installed as Master of Burlington Lodge No. 96 in London on Tuesday, March 4th.
He is also currently the immediate Past Master of Cabbell Lodge No. 807, in Norwich.
I had the great opportunity of spending a little time with Martin and his thoroughly delightful bride Pip at the International Conference on the History of Freemasonry last year in Edinburgh. Martin is the marketing manager of Lewis Masonic, Britain's oldest publisher of Masonic books, and Pip is a writer, editor and illustrator. They live in Suffolk. And they are the only people I know who actually own a chinchilla.
Congratulations, Martin, on your year in the East.
